Fig, Goat Cheese & Thyme Shortbreads

In breakfast, cookie, fruit, nuts on December 16, 2010 at 16:20

Week 42 | 12.16.2010

Wow, what an incredible outcome. This is an involved, multi-step pastry but much of it can be prepared in steps ahead of time. Figgy jam poached in wine and spices, sweetened goat cheese layer, herb-citrus shortbread and a nutty crumble topping. Too much? You might think so until taking a bite, and then another, and perhaps a tiny slice more.

Almond Poppyseed Teacake

In breakfast, cake, fruit, nuts on October 12, 2010 at 12:48

Week 34 | 10.12.2010
It WAS cold, a few days ago when I thought of this treat. Cold enough to dream about a cup of tea warming my hands at any hour of the day. Tea with a teacake… at least that was the plan. Today it’s hot hot hot. I had the fan rumbling at 6:30 this morning, not a baking mood. But maybe you can persuade me.

Another week for macarons. Why? Because they’re all the rage, and fun to make. I’ll be trying a different flavor (no surprises here) with some lemon zest ground in the almonds and lemon curd folded with white chocolate ganache for the innards – at least that’s the plan. Stay tuned!

Week 17 | 6.7.2010

Dark Chocolate Cake & Lemon Curd

In cake, chocolate, fruit on April 26, 2010 at 09:29

Week 11 | 4.26.2010

Last week I came across a bag of Meyer lemons at the office. A co-worker had generously brought in her surplus stock from her garden and I snagged a few (more than half-dozen). Read the rest of this entry »

Candied Lemon Oat Scones

In breakfast on March 1, 2010 at 19:29

Week 3 | 3.4.2010

The lemon zest has been candied and this week’s treats are in the works. I noticed these organic lemons from (Twin Girls Farm) at the market for only slightly more than regular ones. Zest, candy, lemons…organic is a good way to go this time around. Lemon zest on the left, cocktail grapefruit on the right.
